5 It was a bitter disappointment to me not to be able to come over this
6morning I was so knocked up I couldn’t come, & it would have been no
7use if I had so staid in bed till this afternoon. I am going to try &
8get my work, sorting out bits of photographs & books &c alone on
9Tuesday & to come over on Wednesday. I am so sorry to think perhaps
10some of you took all the trouble to come to the station to meet me. I
11am longing so to be with you. Johannesburg is always very sad to me.

13 I will wire you my plans & then I will realy come whatever happens. I
14hope you are better.
